Reproduction in animals

Coming back from the relaxed holidays, I entered the class and told my students we were going to take a thought shower about reproduction an animals. We addressed a lot of interesting issues, but I could also see that they had a lot of questions. Then, the big ask came, they had to make a new project. I told them I was  interested neither in a copy & paste product, nor in a  no-brainer presentation. I wanted them to think outside the box. To be honest, they are very creative, and quite a lot of them show me blue-sky thinking most of the time. At the beginning they felt a little bit shy (reproduction might be a tricky topic!) and I had to tell them: come on guys, ‘heads up‘! Two weeks after I felt really thrilled when they inboxed the movies to me, and I could see that they really pushed the envelope by using movie maker and other programmes to display such  creative and interesting presentations.

  1. Great idea. Congratulations to your students for their creativity. Awesome!

  2. Thank you Javier. I also think they have worked really well. Just a couple of things they could improve:
    – Think carefully about the contents you want to explain and remember: Double checking always pays! (Peacocks don’t have a copulating organ, they mate simply by pressing their cloacas together).
    – The sound in the second video is not very good, what is a shame!

    I really liked the videos. The first one, about peacocks is really well elaborated and the program they used is really original and nice. The second one is ours, I don’t know why the sound is so bad. The third video, in my opinion, is really interesting, and it made me learn a lot of things. Thanks for this project. I really enjoyed doing it.

    Congratulations for all the presentations. You have done an excellent work! The video of peacocks is really interesting and goes further.
    A very good way from the teacher to motivate learning with her students.

    The videos are great! Making this project has been a very interesting one. I hope we could make more projects like these during the rest of the year!
